The best place for birds to find caterpillars is in native trees and shrubs because these woody species have co-evolved with our native butterflies and moths. Even if you have no other native plants in your yard, native trees and shrubs are a great way to get started.
Order shrubs and trees in advance and they will be available for pick-up on September 24th at 405 S Euclid Ave in Oak Park. Fall is the ideal time to plant shrubs & trees to allow them to concentrate on building their root structure over the winter. Trees and shrubs will be in 5 gallon pots unless otherwise noted. We will have volunteers to help you load your trees and shrubs into your vehicle.
